Paul Pogba has hit back at reports of a rift between himself and Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
He also denied claims that he has halted talks over a new contract at the club.
The Frenchman was reportedly considering his future at Old Trafford following the 5-0 defeat to rivals Liverpool in the Premier League on Sunday, in which the midfielder was sent off shortly after coming on as a half-time substitute.
However, Pogba has taken to social media to dismiss the reports, labelling them “fake news”.
Posted on top of a screenshot of a story headlined ‘Pogba snubbed Ole Gunnar Solskjaer after Man Utd loss to Liverpool and shelves contract talks’, the player superimposed a message saying “Fake news”.
The former Juve star added on Instagram.
“Tabloid press once again wants to create polemic with 100% fake news. Big lies to make headlines.”
“Journalists who use my name to be seen when there is nothing to see.”
“The only reason I address this b.s. is out of respect to my coach, club and fans to send a clear message: the less you read these people the better you are, they have no shame and will say just anything with no basis AT ALL.”
The 2018 World Cup winner has frequently been a source of criticism when United have suffered a downturn in form, and has often been linked with a move away from the club.
